If so, how did you get started? Which program did you use?& how much did it cost?

1 mom liked this

go with etsy.  i am too lazy to go into details on why, do you know how to write in html, html5, asp, php, flash?

or do you want a site my 5 year old could create?  

if shes a start up start with etsy, or a blog.

every addon costs money

i just want to give you an example of what a simple website looks like written

<HEAD>

<meta http-equiv="Content-type" content="text/html;charset=UTF-8">

<style type="text/css">

a:link { color:#AAAA00; }

a:visited { color:#999900; }

a:hover { color:#660000; }

a:active { color:#666600; }

</style>

   <TITLE>www.purple.com</TITLE>

<script type="text/javascript">


  _gaq.push(['_setDomainName', 'purple.com']);

  _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']);


  (function() {

    var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true;

    ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ? 'https://ssl' : 'http://www') + '.google-analytics.com/ga.js';

I used adobe dreamweaver in the past.  It is easier than coding your own site, but stills requires good software skills.  I would probably just use etsy for arts and crafts.  It will be much easier at least to get started.  You can build your own website in addition to etsy.

I've never made a website, but I do HTML documentation, which is functionally the same. I use BlueGriffon for most of what I do. It's free, but add-ons are paid (and pretty cheap.) I've also used Dreamweaver, which is very-full featured (and expensive) but harder to learn and overly large for most of what I do.

My cousin was just telling me they teach students to create websites in HS now and use this very program.  Must be pretty user friendly.
